Will there be pain after laser epilation?

When moisturizing cream is applied, this reaction will disappear completely within 1-2 hours.

Alexandrite Laser

Although unwanted hair on the body is one of the biggest aesthetic problems of everyone, men and women, it is possible to get rid of unwanted hair in a painless and practical way thanks to laser epilation technologies that are developing day by day. One of the most widely used technologies in laser epilation is Alexandrite laser epilation. The 755 nm wavelength emitted by FDA-approved Alexandrite laser hair removal devices targets the black substance melanin in the hair and affects the surrounding tissues at a minimum level. This feature of the Alexandrite laser enables the skin to have a smooth appearance after epilation, to work quickly in large areas, and to obtain effective results in thinned hair.

How is Alexandrite laser epilation applied?

In the first stage of the application, the area to be epilated is shortened with a shaver. Glasses to protect the user and the practitioner from laser beams are worn and laser application is performed by means of a handheld device. The handheld device ensures that the laser beam generated by the laser machine is delivered to the skin and repetitive laser shots are applied to the skin. After these laser shots, hair follicles are destroyed and lose their new hair-generating functions. During laser epilation, the skin must be cooled. This cooling is done using cold gas, cold air or various gels in order to avoid any problems on the skin. In order for laser epilation to be effective, the hairs must be in their roots and in the active growth phase called anagen. For this reason, procedures based on removing wax-like hairs from the root should not be performed until 3 weeks before the operation.

What should be the number of sessions and duration of sessions in laser epilation?

The number and duration of sessions to be performed in laser epilation varies according to the application area and from person to person. While the sessions can last between 2-5 minutes for a small area, it can take 1-2 hours for the whole body. There should be at least 1 month between sessions. As the number of sessions progresses, the period of hair growth increases and the sessions are applied every 2 months.
